I am Nicole McDonald, the new principal at Wintersville Elementary. I became principal in 2012 and have witnessed amazing growth in this community. Wintersville Elementary now has many new staff members and a kind, caring office staff. "Like" us on Facebook to catch a glimpse of our great new school.
WES is the worst elementary school in the Ohio Valley. The office staff and Principal are very rude. The principal is the worst of them all. She has no compassion nor professionalism. As a principal she should know that talking about a student in public, about a health condition is wrong and against the law!!! I have since withdrew my child and I can't wait to have the opportunity to talk to the school board and superintendent !!!!
I have been a very involved parent in this school for six years. We have a Talented and Gifted program in our school that challenges the accelerated studdent. There is also the Acclerated Reader Program the principal has instituted with the help of the PTO. The music and art needs to be expanded more where students could showcase their abilities outside the classroom. I think the principal and the teachers are great to work with and are the best in our local area. The declining parent involvement I think is due to the fact that we have single parents that hold a full time job which usually includes working shifts. Also, families where both parents are in the home, are also holding full time jobs.
